The emergence and rapid advance of disc brake technology has proven to be a game-changer in the cycling world. Parlee’s Altum Disc features some key frame and fork designs that allow for seamless integration with today’s disc brakes. The superlight hand-made carbon frame features the same engineering, design, and geometry that makes the rim-brake Altum a class-leader, but with a modular rear dropout that accepts QR135 or thru-axle 142mm wheels. Up front, it has a specially built fork designed for the greater forces of disc brakes and features a 12mm thru axle for added stiffness and steering precision. Its DT Swiss C 1800 Spline wheels accelerate quickly and maintain trueness even on rough roads, and they feature a wider profile to offer greater traction and a smoother aerodynamic profile. Outfitted with a Shimano Ultegra drivetrain, Altum shifts with smooth precision and delivers on Ultegra’s promise of longevity. Ultegra disc brakes offer incredible power and all-weather stopping resiliency to give you peace of mind on every ride.
For adventurous riders who love to tackle unpredictable roads and ride in all kinds of weather, the Altum Disc delivers a new level of performance while maintaining the unmistakable Parlee Ride.
